SealCam offers streaming footage of Carrick Roads
A WEB camera has been installed at the Falmouth Coastguard station to monitor grey seals at Black Rock.
‘SealCam’ has been set up by Falmouth Harbour Commissioners to help the Cornwall Seal Group identify and record the population as part of the Falmouth Seal Photo Identification Project (FalPip).
Sue Sayer, a seal specialist from Cornwall Seal Group, said: “SealCam will enable us to finally establish the age and sex profiles of the seals using Falmouth’s Black Rock at low tide and their seasonal habits in the area.
“It will hugely enhance our photo identification of seals here and enable us to make a greater number of links with other sites around the Cornish coast and Celtic Sea.

“We can't wait to discover the seal secrets of Black Rock.”
As well as offering an exciting new opportunity to monitor the activity of seals, the webcam will also be of use to harbour users who wish to check physical conditions in the bay.
SealCam is already streaming live webcam footage of Falmouth Bay, Carrick Roads and Black Rock.
It is available now to watch online via the ‘sustainability’ section of FHC’s webpage www.falmouthport.co.uk.
